The Le Mars Wrestling Club will start its season Monday, November 24. This will be the day for sign-up and a parental meeting for those wishing to participate in the wrestling club room at the Le Mars Wellness Center at 7 p.m. Sign-ups are encouraged any time during the season, however.
The Club will be headed up by Rich Hessenius and practices will be held at the Le Mars Wellness Center Monday and Wednesday nights. For practice, enter the Wellness Center from the Northeast side, go to the bottom of the stairwell and the wrestling room is right there. The first practice will be December 1. K-2nd grade will be from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. and 3-8th grade will be 7:15 to 8:30 p.m.
There will be a tournament at the Le Mars High School Gym January 17 and there will be a District and State meet sponsored by the AAU in March. The Club has had several wrestlers place at these tournaments in the past. There are tournaments in various surrounding communities almost every weekend for club wrestlers if they choose to compete. The season will conclude the first week of April.
